. in defense of that tony pedista said quote i think there has been a new day of engagement since the election between the corporate community and the white house. oh, you don't say yeah welcome and this is a civic event not a political event so it's okay for corporations to support it. fascinating how after he gets this gigantic amount of money and most of his money from large donors like corporations right after the election president obama has a new stance on corporations. interesting. let's take a look at google. now this is fascinating tax avoidance. you can name so many companies that do this. bloomberg wrote this story about google as an example of how they do this. google avoided $2 billion in worldwide income taxes by 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues to a bermuda shell company. they do things like the double irish and the dutch sandwich, which sounds like a different kind of sandwich to me because we're going to have to eat those taxes. if we lived in a real democracy do you think people would let corporations like google shift $9.8 million in taxes away from us or $2 billion

past life i did criminal defense. it is very difficult to get thrown in jail because of marijuana. if you're in jail because i represented clients like this. if you're in jail because of marijuana you have committed multiple violations. you're on number three four, or five or you had some big stash that the police found in your car. there is nobody in jail anywhere in the united states for smoking a joint somewhere. that's some kind of liberal fire departmentcy. >> cenk: you're making a good point until the last line. there are people in jail over that. it depends why the prosecutor wanting to after them. but your point is fair. a lot of people who are in jail for possession were because of a plea and because the prosecutor thought he was actually dealing. but i don't think it should be illegal in the first place. >> here is the main point of the whole thing if you legalize, if you have a broad legalization of something like marijuana or any drug that is now illegal see your liberal focus--i used to have these debates with bill maher. liberals focus on the demand side. there is th
